A glorious Spring (late Winter) day out here on the left coast. It's gonna hit 70 degrees here today. I expected the weather to be a bit dreary, so opted for a nice dark beer. I've got a Nøgne Ø Terrapin Imperial Rye Porter open this afternoon. This beer is the result of a collaboration between Nøgne Ø Brewery located in Grimstad, Norway and the Terrapin Brewery located in Atlanta, Georgia in the USA.
The beer has a nice aroma - chocolate, cocoa and that wonderful spiciness of Rye. On the tongue, the smoothness of the beer is highlighted with generous malt mouth feel and just a hint of tropical hops. The ABV is 9.0% and it is sold in a 500ml bottle.
